Overcoming The Problem Of Fogging Glasses With Dust Masks
When we want to keep our lungs free of dust and choose to wear a dust mask we want something that is also comfortable.
Some of the cheap ones have a metal piece that holds the mask on to your nose and a piece of elastic to hold it in place, but this lets some of the dust in and also causes glasses to fog up so they are not very effective.
A solution to this is to have a dust mask with a safety valve that lets air in and stops very small particles from getting in such as the 3M 8511PB1-A-PS Particulate N95 Respirator with Valve, 10-Pack
This dust mask will allow you to breathe without fogging any safety goggles or glasses and it’s light and comfortable so you can wear it for long periods without it being a nuisance.
Comfy Mask – Elastic Strap Dust Mask – Elastic Strap Dust Mask is also a good choice as it has lots of very small holes that enable you go breathe without fogging your glasses and fits quite loosely over your face.
3M(TM) Half Facepiece Respirator also overcomes this problem by having a couple of renewable filters beneath each nostril.
Although these will prevent goggles from fogging up, they will not prevent it 100 percent so you may need to wipe a solution on to your goggles to help.
I use a solution on my safety goggles that I also use on swimming goggles:
Jaws Quick Spit Antifog Spray and find it keeps my goggles clear of fog for about thirty to forty five minutes, which is usually long enough.
